a mediocre two-term president. and i believe that. you know, there's a tendency in washington to think that our job description of elected officials is to get re-elected. that's not our job description. and i don't want to look back on my time here and say to myself, all i was concerned about was nurturing my own popularity. >> hey, welcome to "morning joe." we are live from chicago where last night mika and i went to a book event for her book, "all things at once" and had a great crowd out there. very cold in chicago this morning. the talk last night and the talk in washington today is going to be about president obama's state of the union address. and he's, of course, going to be delivering that tomorrow. and we've got a lot to talk about including a spending freeze that predictably has people on the far left angry and the people on the far right angry. and we'll figure out why everybody's so darn angry in a little bit. good morning. it's tuesday, january 26th. and willie, take us around the table up in new york. >> good morning, joe. i know you, too, don't want to get caught up in y

in the washington bureau with more. good afternoon. good does the white house stand on these transfers? >> thank you jamie. a senior administration official insists that no transfers from guantanamo to saudi arabia will happen in the near term, and what's important for context, this official is saying, this has been their position for some time and it's not related to intense pressure from capitol hill to put these controversial transfers on hold, nor does this official say it's related specifically to fight 253, and what's well documented now is that at least two leaders of al-qaeda in yemen, this is the group that claims responsibility for flight 253, came through the saudi rehab program and then returned to the battlefield, jamie. jamie: quick response from capitol hill, right? >> there was. a short time ago, we got a statement from senator jeff sessions who wrote to the obama administration monthing ago not only about the transfers but the program for the jihad is and the administration has not announced a review of the saudi rehab program or any plans to suspend transfers to the facility, this
